The public dialogue around black male achievement got a real boost from President Obama's welcome-if-unambitious, My Brother's Keeper initiative. At 6:30pm EST today, the conversation continues with a Women's Herstory Month-themed Google Hangout: Why Women are Key to the Success of My Brother's Keeper. It's sure to be a rich session. Some of the ten panelists include Michéle Stephenson (American Promise producer and co-director), Damon Hewitt (senior adviser, Open Society Foundations) and co-host, Nicole Franklin (co-director of Little Brother, a film project that talks to black boys about love in their lives).

Check out the rest of the line up and don't forget to RSVP. The YouTube link for the event goes live at 6:25pm EST.
